Rootstock Publishing is pleased to announce the release of Whole Worlds Could Pass Away: Collected Stories by Vermont author and journalist, Rickey Gard Diamond. Her stories are at once familiar and startling, grounded in remarkable everyday experiences as well as in the raw and dreadful.
Published in a range of journals and magazines like The Sewanee Review, Plainswoman, Other Voices, The Louisville Review, and Trivia, Diamond’s characters and settings resonate with a language and voice uniquely her own. These eleven stories from Bears to Worms reveal a common thread in our collective and inner lives.
Her forthcoming book, Screwnomics: How Our Economy Works Against Women and What We Can Do to Make Real and Lasting Change (She Writes Press, April 2018), illustrated by cartoonist Peaco Todd, reframes the unspoken economic theory that women should always work for less—or better, for free.
